Are you sure? If I am not mistaken, Times magazine few month back reported Dubai is starting to feel overhang in its property market. Looking the way Dubai is building all the residentials, there is no reason for this not to happen.

Well, for the truth, i m not sure. And i feel you shld not take this reported news by telling dubai is definitely heading for property burst. True, at some time the property boom ll stop for market correction but we dont know yet if the dubai market can rebound from cooling period. Economists analyse with facts and predict future, but nobody knows how market really react, just like the weather forecast. Once, the late Deng Xiaoping had this famous motto.."To get rich is glorious,". Mayb this is what dubai is trying hard to do.

Bandar Nusajaya stirs investor interest

By Loong Tse Min

KUALA LUMPUR: The Iskandar Development Region (IDR) was the play of the day yesterday, with active trading in such shares as UEM World Bhd and Tebrau Teguh Bhd, as well as the warrants of Mulpha International Bhd.

TA Securities property sector analyst Kamarul Zaman Hassan said the interest was due to “the big hype about Bandar Nusajaya”.

He was referring to the UEM World unit UEM Land Bhd's 9,669ha development within the IDR.

Although development work at Bandar Nusajaya has been under way for some years, the commercial launch of Nusajaya by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is scheduled for Feb 23.

It was reported earlier this month that UEM World would also present a progress report to announce key initiatives that have taken place so far in the IDR, specifically within Bandar Nusajaya.

Among the factors going for the IDR are its proximity to the less-congested second link to Singapore and the expected spillover of visitors from the two proposed resort casinos in the island republic, Kamarul said.

Another positive for the stock was market talk that UEM World plans to sell 2,000 acres in Nusajaya to a four-member consortium led by Khazanah Nasional Bhd, although the company denied this on Wednesday.

Aseambankers Malaysia Bhd head of equities research and executive vice-president Vincent Khoo said: “While the IDR has provided some excitement for some counters, the question remains: How much of that has already been factored into the share price?”

A technical research manager concurred, saying some prices “looked toppish”.


Late selling, however, saw the three counters ending off their intraday highs and closing lower.

Tebrau closed 6.5 sen lower at 84 sen, off a high of 99.5 sen; Mulpha warrants came off a high of 58.5 sen to close down 4.5 sen at 49 sen; and UEM World came off a high of RM4.08, finishing six sen lower at RM3.90.

UEM Land close to concluding deal with theme park operator
By Tamimi Omar

UEM Land Sdn Bhd is close to concluding discussions with international theme park operators to develop a theme park at Bandar Nusajaya in Johor and will announce the details soon.

UEM managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim said the search for a "brand" partner was coming to a conclusion. He said Nusajaya would have two theme parks.

“The search for a brand partner is close and an announcement for the partnership is imminent,” he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur on Feb 16 yesterday.


UEM Land, a unit of UEM World Bhd, is reportedly having discussions with international theme park operator, Disneyland, to open a theme park at the Nusajaya project.

UEM Land is the master developer of Nusajaya, a city southwest of Johor covering 23,800 acres (9,520ha) that will feature seven signature developments consisting the Johor administrative centre, the Puteri Harbour housing project, a medical city, education centre, two theme parks, an industrial centre and a golf course.

Abdullah said Bandar Nusajaya would take 50 years to be fully completed.

He was speaking after UEM Land signed a memorandum of understanding with Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP) and Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd yesterday.

Under the MoU, the three companies will pool their resources to jointly promote and market each other’s products and services.

The collaboration will leverage on one another's strength and avoid duplication of efforts through joint participation in selected road shows or exhibitions held locally and abroad.

The companies will explore the development of workers' accommodation in Nusajaya for the employees of companies based at PTP and the airport.

UEM Land said such an arrangement would help PTP and Senai Airport attract investors to set up operations in their respective trade zones.

“This will increase the attractiveness of the Pelepas Free Zone as an investment location due to the port’s close proximity to available housing estates and sites for factories that need not be within the Free Zone,” PTP chief executive officer Harun Johari said.

He said the collaboration would open up other opportunities whereby UEM and PTP could be introduced to each other’s potential customers.

“The joint effort will enable us to benefit in terms of additional exposure and allow us to maximise our promotional investments through cost sharing,” Harun said.

Both PTP and Senai Airport will provide an efficient and integrated transportation service to complement and accelerate the economic activities within the the Iskandar Economic Region.

UEM World ties up with port and airport
Saturday February 17, 2007
By B.K. SIDHU




From left: Harun Johari, Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim and Datuk Ismail Yusof

KUALA LUMPUR: Foreign participation is vital to the development of Nusajaya in South Johor and UEM Land Sdn Bhd, in its bid to get foreign direct investments, has teamed up with two parties to jointly market the development globally.

Yesterday, the unit of UEM World Bhd inked a memorandum of understanding with Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP) and Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS) to jointly market and promote PTP, SATS and Nusajaya.

Several roadshows had been planned for this year, beginning with trips within the region, UEM Land managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim said.

“On our trips we can get more mileage if we go hand in hand with PTP and SATS as we want to market and sell capacity to the world,” he said after the signing ceremony yesterday.

PTP chief executive officer Harun Johari said the collaboration would open up other windows of opportunities whereby UEM and PTP could be introduced to each other’s potential customers.

He said PTP had received several enquires. But since it would take time for relocation, he did not identify the interested parties.

The three companies are also exploring ways to develop workers' accommodation in Nusajaya, as this could potentially increase the attractiveness of the trade zones in the area.

Abdullah could not say if the roadshow would bring tangible results but remains hopeful.

He said such a move would create global awareness of the mammoth development taking shape in South Johor.

The 23,875-acre Nusajaya – which is one-sixth the size of Singapore – would have seven signature developments. They are the Johor State New Administrative Centre, Puteri Harbour (Waterfront precinct), Educity (an education city with several universities housed there), and Medical Park, an international destination resort that would have two theme parks, and residential and commercial developments.

Abdullah did not disclose the total development cost but said: “There are so many permutations – some want to buy land, some want to lease – and the business model is very diverse.”

The project is expected to be fully developed in 50 years.

Nusajaya is one of five flagship zones within the Southern Economic Corridor in Johor's Iskandar Development Region.

Asked if the land in Nusajaya had been revalued, Abdullah said: “It is the same value in our books. We have no intention to revalue the land yet.”

On whether a theme park operator had been identified since two theme parks are being planned at Nusajaya, Ibrahim said “discussions with potential partners are still ongoing”. He declined to name the parties.

Nusajaya set to be playground for rich and famous

By Ravi Nambiar
bt@nstp.com.my


February 24 2007


NUSAJAYA - southern Johor's exciting new township - will leverage on Singapore's two huge casino resorts to turn the area into a playground for the rich and famous over the next five years.

Project developer UEM Land Sdn Bhd says the idea is not to rival or compete with Singapore, but synergise attractions to make this the place to live, work, do business, relax and enjoy.


"We want to offer the world in one city. This is the main selling point of Nusajaya," said company managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim.


Touted as the single biggest real estate development in the region, Nusajaya is an integral component of the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) - an emerging new economic zone in south Johor.


Although development work at Nusajaya has been under way for some years, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi performed its commercial launch here yesterday.


UEM Land, which is the property development arm of UEM World Bhd, is projecting a total development cost of RM60 billion over the next 20 years to transform Nusajaya into an exciting, vibrant and dynamic new township.


This massive funding, said Wan Abdullah, will be raised through bonds and the sale of some equity instruments.


Located in Gelang Patah near the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing, it involves the development of some 9,669ha, with much of it being greenfield development.



Wan Abdullah is confident it will shape up and materialise within the next five years.



“This is our pledge and commitment to the Government and the people of Johor. Nusajaya will become alive with a myriad of exciting new facilities and attractions by 2012,” he said.



Essentially, it will showcase seven distinct but integrated development components:
# The Johor State New Administrative Centre
# A Medical City
# An EduCity
# Puteri Harbour waterfront development
# International Destination Resort
# Housing
# An Industrial and Logistic Park



“All of these development components are integrated; one cannot exist without the other,” he said, adding that a major marketing blitz was under way to sell Nusajaya to the world.



Already four roadshows have been planned for this year to promote Nusajaya in other countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan.



The IDR and Nusajaya are part of the Federal Government’s plans to turn south Johor into the country’s new growth corridor with world-class developments and facilities to woo visitors from Asia’s burgeoning economies.



This includes an ambitious development blueprint to beautify the waterfront facing Singapore and a concerted action plan to clean up Johor Baru’s image among foreigners, especially Singaporeans, as a cheap shopping destination dogged by crime.



Singapore is itself aiming to re-invent its staid image and hopes to double visitor arrivals to 17 million and triple tourism receipts to S$30 billion (RM69 billion) by 2015, helped by
the casinos and other attractions.

Foreign investments key to success of Iskandar region
By Ravi Nambiar
February 24 2007
BusinessTimes


The prime minister has laid out his vision for the Iskandar Development Region (Iskandar): a global growth centre where the best brains from around the world come to live, work and do busin ess.

The mega-project, spread over 2,217 sq km in south Johor, should be a high-quality development, offering topnotch services and facilities, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said yesterday after the first full board meeting of the newly established Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA), which he co-chaired with Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman.

Iskandar’s progress would hinge on foreign investments brought in by a superlative package of incentives.

“It has to succeed on its own steam and ability through efficient performance, integrity and good governance. If it can do that, then there is very high potential for Iskandar to be successful.”

IRDA also had its first meeting with its advisory council, made up of five of Johor’s most prominent figures — Tan Sri Robert Kuok Hock Nien, Datuk Seri Andrew Sheng, Tun Musa Hitam, Tan Sri Samsudin Osman and Tan Sri Kishu Tirathrai.

Abdullah said one of the key recommendations of the advisory council was swift and easy processes — that Iskandar welcomes professionals, top business managers and industry experts from around the globe with minimum red-tape.

“We must allow the free flow of top brains from around the world if Iskandar is to take off in a big way. This is something the government will take up seriously,” he said.

He said the council had also given its feedback on special incentives to attract and retain foreign investments and an announcement on this would be made soon.

“We want to attract investments from around the world.But they must first find it worth putting their money here. And it must be able to draw good managers with special skills.

“This is the challenge facing IRDA,” he said.

Abdullah said the overriding sentiment among the IRDA advisory council and board was that “Iskandar can work and be successful” because of its inherent strategic advant ages.

He said these included its location, with strong all-round connectivity, outstanding infrastructure, skilled labour, competitive cost of doing business and political stability.

“They all feel the potential for Iskandar to take off successfully is very high. They are very upbeat about its ability to succeed as a first-class global hub for business, leisure and living,” he said.

Iskandar is expected to draw some RM47 billion in investments over the next five years, which in turn is expected to sustain gross domestic product growth in Johor at eight per cent per annum until 2010.

“We believe this investment is realistic and achievable,” said Khazanah Nasional Berhad managing director Datuk Azman Mokhtar.

Azman is also the chairman of the Southern Johor Investment Company (SJIC), the superdeveloper for strategic initiatives under Iskandar.

He said these investments would consist of existing developments already under way and new catalyst projects under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

He said some RM20 billion in concrete development plans had already been committed, including one by an integrated waterfront development company — Kota Selat Tebrau Sdn Bhd — which would be developed over 1,822ha of land.

Another RM4.3 billion worth of projects would also be funded by the government in Iskandar under the9MP, including new highways, roads, cleaning of rivers, sewerage systems and improved security arrangements.

A concerted plan of action would also be set into motion soon to develop top-range healthcare, educational, financial and information and communication technology services and industries.

UEM Land to raise RM1.7b
23 Feb 2007 10:14 AM
THEEDGEDAILY


UEM Land Bhd, the property development arm of Malaysian construction firm UEM World Bhd, will raise RM1.7 billion in debt to fund development in Johor state, a company official said on Feb 22.

"We will be making the decision in this quarter. In the first quarter we will decide who will provide the best structure," UEM Land managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim told Reuters .

Last November, the government unveiled a US$105 billion (RM367.4 billion) plan to develop the southern state of Johor over 20 years, hoping to benefit from neighbouring Singapore's plans to develop two large casino resorts.

State-controlled UEM aims to develop almost 24,000 hectares of vacant and developed land at Bandar Nusajaya, a township in southwest Johor. The plans include a theme park with Walt Disney Co, the firm has said.

"For the three-year period we believe that RM1 billion will be sufficient, plus the RM700 million for the federal administrative complex," Wan Abdullah said.

UEM Land needs RM1 billion to fund properties it aims to develop on its own over the next three years, but it also needs RM700 million to finish work on a government office complex, company officials said.

UEM Land's gearing ratio of 0.7 times was attractive to lenders, Wan Abdullah said, with several financial institutions responding to the firm's request for proposals, and it was now deciding the correct mix of instruments.

"This is a mix of medium-term notes, commercial papers, Islamic debt," he said.

Johor is an important focus of Malaysia's five-year development plan until 2010. It aims to improve its waterfront facing Singapore, to help clean up its image among Singaporeans as a cheap, crime-ridden shopping destination.

UEM Land aims to list a real estate trust with assets of RM1.5 billion by the end of this year, after it finalises the portfolio along with joint venture partner, Australia's AMP, Wan Abdullah said.

"So the joint venture is already set up, we are establishing the portfolio, our target is by the end of this year," he added.

"We are targeting for RM1.5 billion as our initial portfolio. We are, like 60%, 70% there. We plan to list it by the end of the year, give or take one quarter."

UEM Land's development plans in Nusajaya involve around RM10.3 billion worth of projects.

UEM World shares closed down 2.4% at RM4.08 on Feb 22. -- Reuters

PM Abdullah Badawi has to realise this project and make it successful to calm down those people who’s opposed his decision of halting the ‘crooked’ bridge project of Malaysia-Singapore crossing. Those people and Sultan of Johor who claim that the present Johor-Singapore causeway had undermined the Johor state development for long time.

Hope this project progressing according to schedule.

Seven key projects for Nusajaya
By Zuraimi Abdullah
February 26 2007
BusinessTimes


UEM Group has revealed more details and progress of the ambitious plan to turn Nusajaya in Johor into South-East Asia's premier integrated township, outlining seven signature projects on a sprawling 9,696 hectares.

The group - through UEM Land Sdn Bhd - will directly handle five of the seven projects, which should cost about RM60 billion and be home to 500,000 people over the next 20 years.

The seven key developments are the Puteri Harbour Waterfront Precinct, Johor State New Administrative Centre (JSNAC), Southern Industrial and Logistics Clusters (SiLC), residential development, Medical City, EduCity and International Destination Resort (IDR).

The Government's investment arm Khazanah Nasional Bhd is handling EduCity and the IDR that will include two theme parks.

Conceived in 1993, a review of the master plan for Nusajaya was done in 2003. Nusajaya, which is one of five flagship zones under the Iskandar Development Region, was officially launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi last Friday.

The launch marked the start of Nusajaya's regional and global marketing programme, UEM group chairman Datuk Abu Hassan Kendut said. They will include advertising and promotions in roadshows in selected regional locations.

"Strategic collaborations to jointly promote and market Nusajaya have been established with key developmental players such as the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Senai Airport and Iskandar Region Development Authority," Abu Hassan said.

UEM group, in its report card, said Phase 1 of JSNAC will be completed in September this year. It will include state legislative assembly building and the Menteri Besar's office complex.

Work on the mosque and government quarters under Phase 2 is in its final design stage, while the Federal Government Department Complex should be ready in Phase 3.

Development plan for the Medical Park had been submitted for approval. UEM has signed a deal with a private hospital operator, with opening due in 2009.

Earthwork for SiLC had started last June. UEM had begun marketing efforts with Singapore-based advanced technology companies and MNCs in the health/value-added logistics industries.

The waterfront precinct will be built in 15 years. Development plan had been approved with Phase One involving 80 acres. The group had received interest from several international real estate players.

A pact had been signed with South-East Asia Education Holdings Inc to set up an iCarnagie-managed university at Educity. An initial deal with a British university to establish a medical faculty there had also been sealed.

UEM Land, Gamuda in RM2.6b Nusajaya housing project

By Gan Yen Kuan
Email us your feedback at fd@bizedge.com


UEM World Bhd has teamed up with Gamuda Bhd to undertake the RM2.6 billion Horizon Hills residential housing project in Nusajaya, south Johor.

The Horizon Hills project will be the residential nucleus of Nusajaya, one of the five key flagship zones for the other developments in the Iskandar Development Region in south Johor.

Horizon Hills will comprise of 12 precincts spread over 486ha in the heart of Nusajaya. The township will consist of 5,787 housing units, an 18-hole golf course, a signature resort club and themed gardens.

The project will be undertaken by Arapesona Development Sdn Bhd, a 50:50 venture between UEM World's unit UEM Land Sdn Bhd and Gamuda's unit Gamuda Land Sdn Bhd. It will be officially launched on March 11.

UEM World managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin said the township development would help boost its other developments in Nusajaya, such as the Medical Hub and EduCity.

"We look at the contribution (from Horizon Hills) not just for the direct financial contribution through the JV. We also see this development as one of the catalysts and selling points of our other components as well,” he added.

Ahmad Pardas said the collaboration with Gamuda would enable UEM to leverage on each other's strengths in master planning and premier lifestyle development to boost the development of Nusajaya.

It was earlier reported that UEM Land's development plans in Nusajaya would involve RM10.3 billion in projects.

On the Horizon Hills project, Gamuda Land managing director Chow Chee Wah said it would be developed in 11 phases and take eight to nine years to complete.

The first phase - The Gateway – scheduled to be completed by year-end, would comprise over 400 houses with total sales value of RM200 million. The houses are priced between RM245,000 and over RM1 million.

Apart from Malaysians, it will target foreign purchasers, particularly those from Singapore, Indonesia, China, Japan and the Middle East, he added.

Gamuda group managing director Datuk Lin Yun Ling said it has invested over RM100 million in the initial stage to build amenities and recreational facilities in Horizon Hills.

Hence, housebuyers would be able to enjoy the facilities immediately after the delivery of houses.

Lin said The Gateway was next to an established housing area and it is expecting a successful take-up rate. There were over 1,000 registrations for the 400 units to be launched.

Horizon Hills offers distinctive environment architecture, with emphasis on conservation and maintenance of the natural environment.

KUALA LUMPUR: The first phase of Horizon Hills, a mixed property development project in Nusajaya, Johor, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM200mil, will be completed in about two years.

Arapesona Development Sdn Bhd, a company formed by UEM Land Sdn Bhd (a unit of UEM Group Bhd) and Gamuda Land Sdn Bhd (a unit of Gamuda Bhd) in a 50:50 joint venture, is the developer of the mega residential project spanning 1,200 acres.

Horizon Hills has a total GDV of RM2.6bil, comprising 11 phases and 12 precincts, and the whole project should be completed in eight to nine years.

Commenting on the first phase, UEM Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senim said it comprised 400 units and was the first premier lifestyle residential project with a private 18-hole signature golf course outside the Klang Valley.

“The initial response to our residential units in the first phase is good,” he told a media briefing yesterday.

UEM Land managing director Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim said the official launch of the first phase was slated for Sunday.

“The residential units comprise linked houses costing RM245,000 and semi-detached homes from RM1mil each,” he said, adding that a unique feature of the first phase was the density of 4.8 units per acre.

Wan Abdullah said the project would be financed via internal funds from both parties (UEM Land and Gamuda Land) as well as borrowings from Islamic financial institutions.

UEM Land is the master developer of Nusajaya - the largest private development in South-East Asia and one of five flagship zones of the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) under the Ninth Malaysian Plan.

Gamuda group managing director Datuk Lin Yun Ling said: “UEM has an ambitious vision for Nusajaya, an integral component and catalyst for the development of the IDR. We are honoured to be chosen by UEM to be its partner for this strategic and very important project.” Lin said Horizon Hills was very different from the current developments in Johor.

“We offer distinctive environment architecture and put a lot of emphasis on conservation and maintenance of the natural environment. All 12 precincts will offer different and unique designs and concepts to cater for even the most discerning home owner,” he noted.
